I have never understood the hatred for the Steelers. Maybe because the Giants don't play the Steelers but once every four years but I know tons of Eagles, Cowboys and Steelers fans here in Panama City. And the Steeler fans are easily the nicest, classiest of the bunch. They talk with you before the game, during, afterward, they understand the game (whereas Eagles fans cheer when their team gets a three yard gain and then when their defense makes a stop after a four yard run - how can they both be good?).
I would go out of my way to not watch a Giants game with Cowboys or Eagles fans (even though some of those guys are friends of mine) but I would watch a Steeler-Giant game with Steeler fans cause I know that win or lose the Steeler fans will be cool all the way through.
And the Rooney's are class. Congrats Steelers!

Puffy, obviously you never attended a Browns-Steelers game at old Cleveland Municipal Stadium. I can't say "classy" could decribe any of the fan behavior there, Browns or Steelers. Nasty, rude, obnoxious, and downright violent is more like it. Also great fun
I think NBC restored my faith in network TV covering a big football game. I'm so tired of the slipshod job FOX does.
Pay attention to the open sky
- In the 12 seasons from 1980-91, they won 10 or more games in a season only once.
- In the 25 seasons from 1980-2004, they played in only one Super Bowl and lost it.
- More recently, in the period from 2003-06, they finished tied with or below the lowly Cincinnati Bengals in the standings three out of four seasons.
Yes, they won four titles in the 70s and two in the last four seasons, but the quarter century in-between was nothing legendary.

FWIW Santonio should have been flagged for his endzone celebration. Then the Steelers were flagged 15 yards on that last debated play. The Cards were screwed out of 30 yards on that final drive.
Its not every day you see a fumble fly forward as if it was thrown by someone.

I'd have no problem with the ruling being a fumble, but at least have the ref go out and put his head under the hood.
There's no chance they did that.

Am I the only one who thought there was a blatant hold during Harrison's interception return? Don't know who it was but one of the Steelers had a fistful of Warner's jersey as Warner was making an attempt at a tackle.
